How long have you been scouting?:
12 years. I originally joined Rainbows (Brownies for little people) but I soon saw the light, joining cubs once I was old enough and since then I haven’t looked back!
What's your best Scouting experience?:
The World Jamboree in Sweden. I loved travelling around, exploring Europe and making friends from all over the world.
Why do you scout?:
Mostly because I love all of the activities that you get to do in Scouts. There’s not many 9 year olds that get to go canoeing and camping regularly, and I’m sure I wouldn’t have if it wasn’t for Scouts. Now that I’m older I enjoy passing on the skills I’ve learnt to younger Scouts and meeting likeminded people.
What is your role in the team?:
My job is to help Networks encourage more Explorers to move up once they turn 18. I also help out generally within the team.
What do you do when you're not Scouting?:
I am studying Geography at the University of Sheffield so I make use of the easy access to walks in the Peak District from there. I am also part of the Canoe Club where I’m gradually building up my kayaking skills.
